'm jennifer granholm. tonight in the war room john kerry gets ready to take over as secretary of state. and north korea sends him a congratulations message. [ ♪ music ♪ ] there was frightening news from the other side of the pacific today. north korea has vowed to continue testing new nuclear weapons and said it would launch long-range rockets that it claims can reach the united states. this is just after the united nations instituted sanctions on its last rocket launch. it does not seem to have much impact on kim jung-un. a variety of satellites and long long-range rocketses which will be launched one after another we will target the u.s. the sworn enemy of of the american people. settling accounts with the u.s. needs to be done with force not with words as it regards jungle law the rule of its survival. what? the country's belligerent stance is one more issue on the president's full foreign policy plate, and it's going to be a concern for john kerry if he's confirmed secretary of state as he's very likely to be, increasingly likely, as a matter of fact. he got a very warm welcom
john kerry worked together to normalize relations with vietnam in the 1990s. >> helping to establish a relationship with vietnam that serves american interests and values rather than one that remained meyered many mutual resentment and bitterness is one of my proudest accomplishments as a senator. i expect it is one of john's as well. witnessing almost daily his exetch lear statesmanship is one of the highest privileges i've had here. >> kerry's first appearance on the senate foreign relations panel as an activist. some things don't change. >> how do you ask a man to be the last man to die in vietnam? >> i'm tired of -- >> when i first came to washington and testified, i was testifying as part of the group of people who came here to have their voices heard, and that is, above all, what this place is about, so i respect, i think, the woman who was voicing her concerns about that part of the world. >> women at war. the pentagon lifts the 20-year ban on women in combat. opening new career opportunities for thousands of soldiers. live coverage coming up of secretary panetta's big announc
and oppose the whole concept of this consumer bureau thinking it is not really necessary. bill: john kerry, nominated next hour. martha: yep. bill: interesting how he was actually on the schedule for the committee hearing at hillary clinton before hillary clinton sat down. martha: you can't chair a hearing and be in front of the table next day. bill: funny the way washington works. we're just getting moving here. notre dame's manti te'o is talking. why he says he continued to talk about a dead fake girlfriend after he knew she was a fake in the first place. martha: such a bizarre story. a deadly deep freeze. huge parts of the country are now experiencing temperatures so cold that a ski resort has now shut down. bill: and hopes for bipartisanship, is that already over? i mean it has been three days. why a top republican leader says president obama wants to annihilate the republican party. >> let me just tell you. i do believe that is their goal, to just shove us into the dustbin of it had. -- history hey, our salads.

fierce. >> good day. i'm andrea mitchell live in washington. as expected, senator john kerry technically still the chair of the foreign relations committee holding his confirmation hearing today and counted no op sxwligs at that meeting. joining me now is senator bob corker, the top republican on the committee. senator, is it safe to assume that barring some unexpected, unforeseen circumstance senator kerly will indeed be our next secretary of state? >> it would have to be really unforeseen. i don't think there's any question, and we'll have the business meeting, i think, on tuesday morning, and the senate committee, foreign relations committee, and i think it will be voted on immediately and sworn in probably on february the 1st. i think that's what's going to happen. >> having someone in charge of seeing all the incoming. >> you know, i really looked at secretary clinton's testimony yesterday as a way to semi close the chapter on that. i do think there are a number of recommendations through the arb that was put fort to really find out what the flaws were and why this happened. yes, it
. boehner. also, they're -- senator john kerry. also they're waiting for hillary clinton, john kerry to be the next secretary of state. secretary clinton wrapping up 5 1/2 hours of testimony before this committee and also before the house foreign affairs committee yesterday on the attacks in benghazi. you can find those in our video library at c-span.org. >> on c-span is waiting for the start of the hearing, confirmation hearing for john kerry to be the next secretary of state. this morning announced by the white house that the president will nominate mary jo white to be the new securities and exchange commission commissioner. and we will have live coverage of his announcement expected to be this afternoon at 2:30 eastern here on c-span. >> good morning. this hearing of the senate foreign relations committee to consider the next -- the nominee for the secretary of state will come to order. let me, again, ask as i did yesterday, since the full senate has not yet passed the committee resolution sitting members, i ask unanimous consent the returning members to allow our prospective memb
cavuto. unless john kerry pulls a silly was he can wall into his new office now. expected to easily get confirmation to run the state department but with scant discussion of our screwups in the state department. and it's not just hillary clinton getting it yesterday. it's almost as if everyone is looking at the threat facing thousands of americans and saying, it's no threat today. that worries former top diplomat casey mcfarland. it is the stupid of them. >> good to have you here. >> thank you. >> what do you make of this? >> a great opportunity. why? yesterday's especially, and even today, the focus is not on the problemmed of the future. especially yesterday when i grilled secretary clinton. it was talking points and timelines and stuff that really -- that train has left the station. we need to focus on the next four years, because if we don't, the bus will come off the trolley and secretary-to-be kerris going to have a hard item with the spread of terrorism in africa. hostage taking throughout the world, a nuclear iran. north korea will have long-rangl the other things happening with
you for reminding me of that chapter in my public clear and what you and john kerry accomplished together. i want to talk about the role of the united states, it is called upon to negotiate, to make it safer. certainly since world war ii, it has involved nuclear weapons and it does to this day as we discussed the future of nuclear entrance like, god forbid, iran intoork the nuclear club, which we don't want to see happen. we also know there came a new threat, terrorism, in a different form. biological and chemical weapons. organizations that attacked the united states and killed innocent people. but it was, i think last year or the year before, that we were briefed by the state department, department of defense, about the greatest threat to security in the united states and it wasn't either of those things. it was cybersecurity. i think you may have attended the brief, the classified briefing for members of the senate. democrats and republicans. they explained to us this invisible war that goes on even as we meet between the united states and many who are not our friends that are
secretary of state clinton and john kerry. your thoughts on how hillary clinton has done as secretary of state and john kerry as going forward. >> first of all, secretary of state clinton has been respected around the world. >> greta: i think there was a drinking contest involved, is that false? >> false. >> greta: right. >> so, i have-- i admire the fact that she is admired throughout the world and a very effective secretary of state. i also think that john kerry will do a credible job as secretary of state. he has a world of experience and john kerry and i don't agree on a lot of issues, but we have a relationship which was forged years ago and so, i have confidence that he will carry out the president's agenda and serve the president. now, i wouldn't nominate, very frankly, as we are, wouldn't nominate him to be secretary of state, i would have my own selection, but i respect the president's selection in this case. i do have significant and serious questions for senator hagel. >> greta: and that will be coming up soon. >> yes, be coming before the armed services committee next week
senator kerry at the confirmation hearing. live coverage begins at 10:00 eastern. first, we will bring you "washington journal." then the senate confirmation hearing for john kerry. live coverage of the pentagon news conference with leon panetta and martin dempsey. and about 45 minutes, winnie stachelberg on gun control. max boot on foreign-policy. bradley shear worker rights in the workplace. >> as secretary i have no greater priority responsibility. as i have said many times, i take responsibility. nobody is more committed to getting this right. i am determined to be the state department -- to leave the state department safer and more secure. it meant moving quickly to respond to the immediate crisis, but also to further protect our people in high threat areas across the region and the world. host: we will get your reaction this morning to hillary clinton's testimony yesterday. we do expect misses clinton on capitol hill again today as john kerry has his hearing to replace her. for the first 45 minutes, we will get your reaction to the testimony. what's being written and on television. t
, because the chairman of this committee is john kerry, the expected successor to hillary clinton. i'm told, do not expect to see kerry even in the room today. he is recusing himself, so today's committee will be chaired by the next most senior democrat, and that is bob me n menendez of new jersey. barbara boxer also has seniority in this committee, but she is the chair of another committee, so the way the rules will work, it will be bob menendez of new jersey who will be chairing this. interesting to watch, a couple of the senators who might be in a 2016 frame of mind, marco rubio, rand paul, perhaps, they also did not serve with hillary clinton as a senator. so the tone might be different there. there's a lot of respect on both sides of the aisle from those senators who did know her personally, while she was a member of the u.s. senate. chris? >> well, you've set it up pretty well there, it seems, because you've got a very formidable political presence there. hillary clinton, we just looked at the new numbers on her, she's three to one popular. do you think that will make the republican
relations committee tomorrow, to introduce her likely successor, senator john kerry. >> brown: online you can watch some of the more heated exchanges from the hearing, as well as read the full testimony transcript. still to come on the "newshour": the emergence of africa for u.s. policy-makers; combat roles for women in the military; the robotic planes known as drones and the way forward for the g.o.p. but first, the other news of the day. here's hari sreenivasan. >> sreenivasan: an arctic storm system kept its grip on the midwest and northeast today. sub-zero temperatures spanned a large swath of the nation, from the upper midwest into new england, and 15 states were under wind chill warnings. fierce winds have blown across the great lakes for days, dumping more than a foot of snow on ohio, pennsylvania and new york. the deep freeze is forecast to stick around through the weekend. marine general john allen is back on track to become supreme commander of nato forces in europe. white house officials said today his nomination is no longer on hold. that's after the pentagon inspector general
. i understand we'll welcome you one more time when you come tomorrow to introduce senator kerry to the committee. we'll look forward to welcoming you there as well. i think that there are several takeaways here that are incredibly important. one is that we have to look at the totality of the threat environment versus just looking for a specific credible threat when we are thinking about the protection of our foreign service personnel. and i see that we are moving in that direction. the other one is that changes in the department have clear lines of authority. and responsibility for security matters instead of silos and looking more in a horizontal nature and i understand that's underway. secretary gates used to famously argue that there are more people in military bands than in the entire foreign service. it seems to me that surely we can find the funds to protect our diplomats who serve on the front lines. and i am concerned when the arb says that the state department has been engaged for years in a struggle to obtain the resources necessary to carry out its work. and that has
and that is not good news for the next man in line, john kerry. tracy: safety investigators looking into the problems, they say excessive voltage is not to blame for the fires that grounded bowling star airplane. ashley: phil mickelson take a swing. he coul can be reached take a me possibly out of the country. tracy: we have some good news for president obama heading into his second term. america's outlook on the economy is picking up. 37% of voters are actually satisfied with the state of the u.s. economy. that is up from 20% and the president first took office in 2009. a senior political analyst at the "washington examiner" joining us now from d.c. 37% satisfied. i guess it is better than down from 20%, right? >> we were talking about four years ago, we have been through major financial crisis and the outlook for some really major problems was unclear. when you have 37% saying they think it will be better, 63% don't think it'll be better. that is a pretty negative verdict and i think it is a lot different than you would have seen the day of ronald reagan second inaugural. tracy: his inauguration sp
introducing senator john kerry in his confirmation hearing and we'll tell you about that in just a bit. walter is in baltimore, maryland on our independent line. caller: happy new year, this is my first call of the year and i'm looking to being a continued participant p c-span. i enjoyed secretary clinton's responses to the questions that were thrown at her by the republican -- if i can, clowns, who seem to want to make this a travesty on the american people when it was not a travesty on the american people. it was an attack. and i do believe that she honestly and tried to defend our system of justice by not jumping out off the bridge with a bunch of foolishness. the terrorist attacks that occurred on september 11 of last year, couldn't have been anticipated by anybody. and we hope as we have taken the flags and ribbons off our cars following september 11, 2001, that we will respectfully try and come together and move on with justice for the world, not just for those four americans that died. but for the entire world. host: let's go to florida, and sharon on our republican line. caller: i was
by john kerry. of course he has been nominated to replace secretary clinton. senator bob menendez, senator from knew jersey -- new jersey will wield the gavel have. bill. bill: it is fascinating to see how all of the events of the news ties into not just benghazi but what is happening all over the northern part of africa. what is she expected to say about the war on terror and the pursuit of al qaeda? >> reporter: bill, we expect she will talk about essentially all of the attacks that have been on these diplomatic facilities dating back to the 1970s or 1980s even. essentially how it has been a problem spot for both republican and democratic administrations. she is also expected to take responsibility for what happened in benghazi. here's a sample what her, let's go back to the hearing, bill. bill: mike, thank you. this is senator bob menendez out of new jersey, who is beginning his statement and we would anticipate hillary clinton to follow him. let's listen. >> officially seating members. i want to ask unanimous consent of returning members to allow our prospective members to participate
appearance because senator kerry, of course, his hearing is set for the 24th, day after. so he's going to be up there oddicians for her job and he isbelieved to be a shoe-in in terms of confirmation. >> rose: margaret brennan, thank you so much. pleased to you have here. come back often. >> thank you. >> good to be here. our coverage of the events in algeria and mali continue with a distinguished panel of guests. joining me from washington pax boot of the council on foreign relationment his new book is called invisible arm armies a-- peter pharm, director of the africa center of the islamic council and jennifer cook direct of the aica program at the centre for strategic and international studies. i am pleased to have them all here. max give me a sense of what you know about where we are at this moment? >> i think charlie we are in a very early stages of what could be a very protracted insurgency campaign. one of the things that i did in the course of doing the research for my new book is a calculated the average length of an insurgency since 1945. and the average length is nearly 10 ye
of state and the secretary of defense that he has, john kerry and hagel, they're communicating accurately the minimalist approach to the world. you can make a case for that. but neither, neither of them nor the president has a positive vision of how you're going to deal with a worldwide virus that is increasingly destabilizing the planet. and that's what's happening from pakistan through north africa to syria and i think potentially in europe and the united states. >> i have less than a minute here. i need one-word answers from you. joe biden made a bit of a slip up talking about how hap he was going to be president of the united states. >> joe biden would be happy to be president of the united states and i think he is planning to run, if possible. >> quickly. >> i think he wants to, but i'm not sure he will. >> why not? >> the american people deserve a break from presidential campaigns. >> oh, there's one. >> thank you, all, so much this morning. >> thank you. >>> next up, roosevelt, kennedy, lincoln, atchison, one of these names is not like the others. we'll have the story of a man some
senator kerry to the committee. we look forward to talking to you then as well. i think there are several takeaways here that are incredibly important. one is that we have to look at the totality of the threat environment versus just looking for a specific credible threat when we are thinking about the protection of our foreign service personnel and we are moving in that direct. the other thing is that the government has clear lines of authorities and responsibility for security matters instead of silos looking more in a horizontal nature and i understand that that is under way. a lot has been said about resources here. secretary gates used to famously argue that there are more people in military bands than in the entire military force. it seems to me we can protect our diplomats who serve on the front lines and i am concerned when the a.r.b. says that the state department has been engaged for years and a struggle to obtain the resources necessary to carry out its work and that has conditioned the thinking of some in the state department that it is imperative for the state department to b
of thoughts about what more we can and should do given this new reality we face. >> thank you. senator kerry >> thank you. -- senator. >> thank you. you have always spoken out forcefully where required. this is maybe the last time you come before us as secretary. i want to thank you for your advocacy on behalf of women around the globe. you will be sorely missed. i hope not for too long. as you have said, you were heartbroken by those losses in benghazi. we saw your face many times today, as well. you were heartbroken personally and professionally. rather than 0.2 others for their deficiencies, you stepped up and convened an accountability to review board to look into this in detail. you asked them to tell it the way they saw it. i want to give you my take on that. i want to go to something the senator said which i agree with. the first report we got from the intelligence community a week or so after was very confusing. it was not helpful to us. all of us felt that way. i want to speak for my self. the difference between that meeting and the meeting we had with those cochairs could not have
'll be able to welcome you one more time when you come tomorrow to be part of introducing senator kerry to the committee. so we look forward to welcome you t well. i think there are several takeways here that are incredibly important. one is, is that we have to look at the totality of the threat environment versus just looking for a specific credible threat when we are thinking about the protection of our foreign service personnel. and i see that we are moving in that direction. the other one is the changes in the department have clear lines of authority and responsibility for security matters. instead of silos, looking more at a horizontal nature. i understand that is underway. a lot has been said about resources here. secretary gates used to famously argue that there are more people in military bands than in the entire foreign service. it seems to me that surely we can find the funds to protect our diplomats who serve on the front lines. and i am concerned when the arb says that the state department has been engaged for years in a struggle to obtain the resources necessary to carry ou
of state, john kerry, and chuck hagel, which he has gone a lot of flak for it, to the secretary of defense? >> those are promising choices. john kerry may finally liberate himself with a push from chuck a goal. they are going to have to take on the military-industrial complex and reduce those mass of weapons systems that were designed for a soviet-peristyle hostility like the f-22 and nuclear subs. they're going have to cut the military budget down from its $800 billion, and get out of afghanistan and iraq. and whether they have the chemistry and the political fortitude to do so, it remains to be seen. but i think they are a better choice than their predecessors. i think john kerry will be better than hillary clinton, who had to be macho all the time. and panetta, chuck hagel will be better than panetta, who was kind of a fill in. and spent weekends back in california where he really wants to retire. there is a little promise there. but again, it requires the resurgence of mass demonstrations in washington this spring to develop a convergent policy from the militarization of foreign-policy
is respected on both sides of the aisle. while your likely successor senator kerry has my full confidence, you will be deeply missed. you've made our country safer, stronger, and in more secure and in my view because of your leadership, you are. the review board found that security was grossly inadequate to deal with the attack that took place in benghazi in september. the mistakes that were made are simply unacceptable and i am pleased that the state department has begun to promptly implement the board's recommendation, thanks to your leadership. i know that you agree that the massive security detail that cost the lives of four brave americans simply cannot happen again and i look forward to working with my colleagues on this committee in a searching review of the resources needed and the state department structure to ensure that we do better to protect our diplomats and other americans that put their lives at risk each and every day. as chairman of the african subcommittee, i am pleased that you have drawn for this committee in your testimony the links between this tragic incident in benghaz
